Forecast in detail

We add a couple of degrees to close out the weekend nicely, with even warmer weather on tap. High pressure protects us from a front to our northwest, keeping us dry and gradually warmer through midweek, with a mix of sun and clouds. We’re near 70 by tomorrow afternoon and could approach 80 midweek. I, for one, could get used to this.

Today (Sunday): It’s another cool early-morning start in the upper 30s to low 40s, but partly sunny skies help burn away the chill, with temperatures rising into the 50s by mid- to late morning. Light winds from the southeast add a couple of degrees over yesterday, with highs in the mid-60s. We’ll be close to “Nice Day” territory, but the cloud forecast is too uncertain to make it a sure bet. Regardless, not too shabby for the second half of October. [10 a.m. update: Looks like more than enough sunshine, at least through the first half of the day, for a Nice Day sun, despite some afternoon clouds.] Confidence: Medium-High

Tonight: A continued light breeze from the southeast along with increasing clouds keeps us on the milder side. We’ll call it partly to mostly cloudy as evening temperatures fall back into the mid- to upper 50s, with lows only dropping to the upper 40s and low 50s. Confidence: High

Tomorrow (Monday): A weak front approaches from the northwest but doesn’t quite make it into our area. So while we do see some clouds, partly sunny skies and a light wind from the south should get highs to near 70, leaving us with another rather pleasant day. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow night: With partly to mostly cloudy skies and light winds still from the south, temperatures remain mild again. Evening readings retreat through the 60s with overnight lows in the mid-50s. Confidence: Medium-High

A look ahead

If some was good, more is better, and Tuesday and Wednesday set us up for plenty more of the same. High pressure keeps the front north of our region, so we’ll see partly sunny skies and even warmer temperatures, with Tuesday highs in the mid-70s and Wednesday highs in the upper 70s to near 80. We’ll be dreaming about days like these before too long, so enjoy it while you can! Confidence: Medium
